Did a little Google digging and found this for you:

Carson VW Scirocco

I've never heard of them, but apparently they're a German company that makes entry-grade RTR R/C cars.

Here's another link from a German RC forum: Google English Translated Page

That appears to be a VW Scirocco body. Not sure who makes it.

:edit: Yeah, I should keep reading replies.

i use the blue 44mm on mine. the fit is just perfect with a cut urethane bumper in both cups (i also have the alum drive cups) i think 46mm would be too long.

Check out Rodzilla's ride, check out the cvds.
Thanks Rod.

Careful tho, I'm pretty sure he has different hinge pin mounts which widens the stance and that could make a difference.
His mounts are listed on this setup sheet.

Actually, I believe either 44 or 46mm works.
However, is there any advantage to using either one?

His stance is wider. I believe kit is !XD on the front. He is running 1C

That picture was taken when I was running a narrow setup and yes the 46mm swing shafts worked with the plastic outdrives. With aluminum, you may have to run 44mm.

Cuda, that setup sheet is missing some additional information and has been updated with extra details. You can find it here: 2010 Tamiya TCS Finals Setup. I think it's posted on Tamiya's site as well.

That Carson company has also made a Porsche 914/6gt body for the Tamiya M02L/M04L. http://www.airbostongraphics.com/914.htm

Hey guys. I'm looking at getting an FF03 Pro kit for a little bit of fun. Put my old FF01 into retirement a while back and have always missed the fun of driving a FWD. Just wondering what/if any additional hop up must haves people are putting on the Pro kit.
